Brazing & Soldering
More on brazing and soldering
Brazing is the process of joining two metal surfaces by fusing a layer of copper, brass or high melting point solder, between them. Refrigerant tubing is typically brazed using an oxyacetylene torch at a temperature of about 3,000 degrees Centigrade to create a solid, leak free joint.
The brazing kit is an essential tool for the ACR technician. The Turbo Set supplied by Advanced is the market leader in the compact starter kit sector, having everything you need to start brazing in a high-quality, affordable package.
Heat transfer during soldering, brazing and welding can be a problem. Materials in the closed vicinity can be heat damaged or burned. Protecting them can be difficult, especially in tight places.
